Putin On Finland Joining NATO : Putin Warns Finland Says Joining NATO Would Be A Mistake During A Phone Call To Finnish President

Kyiv : After Ukraine, now the tension between Russia and Finland is increasing. The reason is the same, NATO membership. On Thursday, Finland’s prime minister and president announced that her country supports joining NATO. Russian President Vladimir Putin has warned Finland that joining NATO and abandoning Finland’s neutral stance would be a “big mistake”. Russia had earlier said that Finland’s joining NATO could force it into “military action”.

Putin told his Finnish counterpart Souli Niinisto that there was no threat to Finland’s security, BBC reported. This warning has come to the fore in a phone conversation between Ninisto and Putin. Sweden is also showing signs of joining NATO after the Russian attack on Ukraine. Sweden has the most powerful air force in Europe, while Finland and Russia have a 1300 km border. In such a situation, if these two countries join NATO, then Russia’s concern may increase.
‘If only! Putin should die of his cancer’, Russian businessman’s heart filled with hatred for his President, told- Crazy President!
Stopping the power supply can increase the tension
Finland had not yet joined NATO to avoid tensions along its eastern border. Putin has not directly threatened Finland with retaliation, but the Russian Foreign Ministry has indicated there will be retaliation. Russia has given early indications of this by stopping the electricity supply to Finland. Russian energy supplier RAO Nordic cited payment issues in its statement.

‘No threat to Finland’s security’
At the same time, Finland, while talking to the BBC, said that there would be no problem with the Russian cut. Finland imports 10 per cent of its total electricity consumption from Russia, which can be replaced by other alternatives. After Putin and Niinisto’s talks on Saturday, the Kremlin said the Russian president insisted that abandoning the traditional policy of military neutrality would prove to be a big mistake because there was no threat to Finland’s security.

How did the Finnish president respond?
He said a change in the country’s politics could have a negative impact on relations between Russia and Finland, which have developed over the years with the spirit of good neighborliness and ally between the two partners. Niinisto said he told Putin that Russia’s recent moves, including the invasion of Ukraine, affected the security environment in Finland. He said the conversation was very frank and was done without any provocation. During this, emphasis was placed on relieving stress.
